    As an individual in society, it’s important to have compassion and empathy for others. There will be some who are more fortunate and better off than them and others who are worse off. Many people in life will go through a lot of struggles within their lifetime and so having a support network around them is crucial.

    As humans, it’s natural to have empathy but having that empathy is something that needs to be taught, even if it does come naturally on it’s own.

    Teach your kids to be compassionate when a scenario presents itself. Give back to others and have your kids be part of that giving back. Whether that’s to charity or helping out a next door neighbor with their shopping.


      There comes a time in many a person’s life when hard work and perseverance are needed. Being able to wade through the mud at times in their lifetime will often result in a positive outcome.

      That resilience is going to come in handy throughout their youth and beyond. Within education, the perseverance to study and pay attention in their lessons is hopefully going to result in great grades. The same efforts will be needed when they step into the adult world and explore various career prospects.

      Again, you can be a great role model for this as a parent, showing perseverance in times of struggle.

      Responsibility and accountability

        Taking ownership of something that you’ve done or were responsible for is important to acknowledge and accept. Like many things in life, there will come a time when your child might be responsible for something or held accountable for something that hasn’t been done.

        For example, applying this in an adult situation could be a responsibility for paying bills. If bills aren’t paid on time, then a person is accountable for any fines or late payments that need to be met as agreed in the contract.

        Time management

          Being able to manage your time is important both in your personal life and in your professional life. You don’t want your children to be known as the ones that are always showing up late or who are often never on time for important events or meetings as adults.

          Time management is good to implement from a young age and this happens when you create routines for your kids. It often begins in the mornings before school when they need to get ready, have breakfast, and be out the door in time to get to the school gates to start the day.

          With time management, you’re able to give your kids a valuable and at times, vital skill that’s beneficial to them.


            Within the workplace and for life in general, there may come a few stumbling blocks. It’s important that in their early development, they’re able to practice critical thinking, as well as problem-solving.

            Being able to resolve issues within their personal lives and professional lives when needed, is key. With problem-solving, they’ll have a much better quality of life as they’ll be able to overcome the obstacles that so often get in the way.

            Hard work

              Finally, to get anywhere in life, you have to put in the work. Not everyone in life gets the same great start as some others do, which is why it’s important to teach the valuable lesson of hard work. Hard work can get you places, it can bring you recognition in the form of glass awards for outstanding contributions and work ethic.

              Try to encourage this from an early age whether that’s the level of work they put into their studied, their extra-curricular activities, or even the household chores they do on a weekly basis.

              Think about how you could build upon the work that they’re already doing as a youngster, at whatever age they may be. As they get older, they can foster a hard-working nature, which is only going to benefit them and their life in the future. 

              These are all valuable lessons and a starting point to ensure your children grow up to be well-rounded individuals in society.
